The acting is atrocious and the jokes are juvenile. The production values including FX are suprisingly good. NOTE: "Flesh Gordon" was released in 1974. This its only sequel was released in 1990 and 1993 as NC-17 and R rated versions. This trailer is for the 1990 NC-17 version.

Nearly fresh off the boat and unfamiliar with the genre, Hitchcock managed to come up with this hilarious screwball comedy costarring Carole Lombard and Robert Mongomery. Its basic premise would be repeated in the episodic, all-star comedy "We're Not Married." (1952) TRIVIA: The first American film to feature a pizzeria, although a pizza isn't actually shown. IMDB states this was Hitchcock's only comedy. Of course this isn't true. In 1955 Hitch directed the black comedy, "The...

"The Seven Year Itch" was a racy Broadway play adapted to film by Billy Wilder in 1955. Much of the play's risque content was removed or toned down for the film. Here are two lost scenes. Dialog was rewritten for the famous subway grate sequence. Censorship also led to a surprisingly mild bathtub scene being cut. Nevertheless, the film was a huge box office smash and made an A-list star out of Marilyn Monroe. Topics: classic, hollywood, films, 50s, 1950s, comedies

Six years after this film's release, Marshall and Nucci married in real life. Topics: movie trailers, comedies, domestic comedies, romantic comedies, Bette Midler, Dennis Farina, Paula...
